Interdisciplinary care team adoption of electronic point-of-care documentation systems: an unrealized opportunity.
To address the knowledge gap about barriers and facilitators to interdisciplinary care team adoption of computer-based point-of-care documentation systems, the researchers conducted three evaluations at each of two community health sites. They found that at each site there was a need for continuous feedback from front line users and on-going training to improve knowledge. Clinicians did not perceive any impact of the point-of-care documentation systems on patient outcomes.

Making decisions in a complex information environment: evidential preference and information we trust.
This article discusses the role of information sources and evidential preferences—including the influence of health professionals, general and ethnicity-specific media, Internet sources, personal experiences, and family and friends and their testimonials and anecdotal evidence in health decisions. It also contains recommendations for health communication practices, professional training, and future research directions.

Media, messages, and medication: strategies to reconcile what patients hear, what they want, and what they need from medications.
This analysis takes the form of a critical, integrative synthesis of research from the fields of medicine, marketing, public health, and health communications. The authors conclude that the problem is not a lack of information: rather, it is knowing what information to trust.

Telephone follow-up in primary care: can interactive voice response calls work?
The purpose of the study was to assess patient perceptions about follow-up calls after ambulatory care visits, to evaluate differences in perceptions about human calls and interactive voice response system (IVRS) calls, and to explore the association between follow-up calls and patient satisfaction with care. It found that there were no differences in attitudes between patients receiving calls from clinic staff or from an IVRS.
